  • ... he looked upon the world
    and saw that it was still depraved

    as him
    though not like him
    for him, as all

    but closed
    like them
    not him

    unaware
    he was
    already caught within
    their cycle
    with them
    outside
    depraved

    instinctive
    rebellion
    possessed
    by bestial despair
    he fought
    this law
    and broke
    the spell

    "So, this is why I built my empire
    fled from the truths unto which they conspire"

    in spirit born a stranger
    a counterpart in mind
    the seeker raised to bury
    a freak among the blind

    encountered with mysteries
    on his mission to reverse their ways
    he sought a life among the dead
    with refuge in an endless maze

    ...before the silence...

    "This can not be the purpose of my presence.
    What then is the call of my return?"
